Cliff Burlew Associates Design

The J. Reed Gattman Residence, 1959

Sold

Description

This exceptionally pristine mid-century modern residence in Encino South of the Boulevard summarizes all the characteristics of the style the world knows as the “California House.” Living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen & family room open southwards via floor-to-ceiling glass, displaying the extensive yard with a pool, and thereby bringing verdant foliage and bright sunlight inside all day long. The “Mad Men” era of sky’s-the-limit optimism persists here, without the discarded, rigid, social divides prevalent at the time. Cherished by just two owners, this classic harks back to the modernist heyday, upgraded where absolutely necessary in kitchen and baths, but basically original – all but untouched by the passage of five decades. A spacious, well separated master suite is split off from the three family bedrooms. The spirit of modern design that made mid-century California a global icon of the (still elusive) promise of universal affluence & self-fulfillment is alive and well at the Gattman Residence.
